You know that you can trust Hoozuki (CV: Hiroki Yasumoto) to place you were you belong in Hell, and we get to follow him, King Enma (CV: Takeshi Nagasako) and the minions’ daily life in Japanese Hell. This second season introduces us to new characters as well as let us see old ones return.
For once I didn’t watch something on Crunchyroll! Instead this is available on HiDive, which unlike CR is a subscription only service. I used the free trial solely to watch this show, because Hoozuki is such a great character and the show itself is loveable, witty and dark all at the same time. It continues its commentary on Japanese society while making references to mainly Japanese folktales and mythology.
Overall my commentary is staying roughly the same as with the first season, so it feels like a waste of time and effort to repeat myself, but I’d like to add that I do remember the first season to be better than I rated it.
Also, lol, it’s been so long since I tried that rating system out I forgot it existed. I’d say a 3.5 for both season in general would be accurate considering my love for dark comedy, and how blunt and logical Hoozuki is. This show isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if someone wants a good dark comedy show, I do suggest both this and the previous season.
